A public accounts committee report criticises the MoD over its failure to collect data on supplies:
"At present, the department does not have the information to identify where savings could be made.
"It does not know the full costs of its current activities or the cost of alternative supply options, information it needs if it is to begin improving value for money.
"The failure to collect basic data about where supplies are stored has directly contributed to the department's accounts being qualified for three consecutive years."
"Against the background of repeated failures to get to grips with asset tracking and allied information systems for logistics, it is vital that the MoD sustains its programme in order to secure value for money."
